 I'm so excited to share this very pastel look with y'all today! I didn't even realize it, but I'm definitely tapping into this year's Pantone colors, with Rose Quartz hair, a Serenity blue skirt, and a Lilac Grey top! Well I snagged this skirt for crazy cheap on the clearance rack at LOFT, and I'm obsessed with how classic and feminine it is!

Clinique Pop Lip Color + Primer

Clinique Pop Lip Color + Primer - Southern New Yorker

I can't believe it's taken me this long to give these lipsticks their own post. I picked up my first Clinique Pop Lipstick, Poppy Pop, back in July and fell in love with it. Since then I've collected three more gorgeous shades, and I'm eyeing quite a few more (aka all of them)

Clinique Pop Lip color + primer - Southern New Yorker

Generally with lip products, there is some sort of tradeoff. Matte products have amazing color and staying power, but they are usually very drying on the lips. Hydrating lip products nourish lips, but color payoff is usually not great, and staying power is even worse. But with these Clinique Pop lip colors, you can have your cake and eat it too! (literally, you can eat with these on and they will. not. budge.) They have outstanding color, insane staying power, and they feel amazingly rich and moisturizing on the lips!

The four shades that I've snagged so far have been Love Pop, a gorgeous mauvey-purple, Cola Pop, a striking dark brown-red (right), Punch Pop, a bright fuchsia (left), and Poppy Pop, a fun orangy-red (center). 

Next up on my wishlist: Bare Pop, Fab Pop, and Passion Pop!

Clinique Almost Lipstick - Black Honey

The ultimate your-lips-but-better product! I picked up Clinique's Almost Lipstick in Black Honey from Sephora about three weeks ago and I've reached for it almost every day since! 

Don't be fooled by the dark color, it gives a sheer wash of berry, which can be built up to a darker shade if needed. The genius of Almost Lipstick shades is that they look good on virtually everyone and can be as sheer or as dark as you'd like!

Clinique brought back Black Honey by popular demand (though I've found Pink Honey at Sephora)

Black Leather & Graffiti Art

This leather circle skirt is about as punk-rock as I'll ever get, and it's definitely a fun break from my usual looks. I paired it with an all-black outfit and a bright bag! 

About half a block from FIT is a discount fabric store which has crazy colorful graffiti of race cars on it's cover, which I loved! (but there was a crazy homeless man yelling at us, so we switched locations...)  

I swear the Free People tank above comes in black and the bag comes in red!! ^^^

And since I couldn't find my exact earrings, here's a few options!!

Rompin' Around

Rompin' Around

This adorable leaf print romper was on sale at LOFT and I snatched it up as soon as I spotted it! I love the way it paired with my coral statement earrings from Francesca's, Clinique Poppy Pop lipstick, and my favorite ankle-strap flats by Steve Madden!
